Sony has announced that it will give prizes out to trophy hunters on PS4 and PS5 as part of their new “Seize the Throne” initiative.
Inspired by the superb Play Has No Limits live action ad which debuted back in September, Seize the Throne will give PlayStation fans the chance to win a limited edition PS5 console among other prizes.
Here’s where you can sign up. Make sure you have selected the correct region or you won’t be able to successfully enrol with your PSN ID.
The campaign starts on November 2nd and will be broken into several stages. The PlayStation community will work together to earn points that will in turn unlock rewards including exclusive PSN avatars and a specially-made theme.
Each online activity has a points score as shown below. Simply playing a game will net you a small bundle of points, though there’s a clear emphasis here on encouraging players to earn trophies. Sony is also keen to get PSN users sharing screenshots and video clips online, either sharing them with friends on PS4 and PS5 or linking their account to social networks to show off their gaming skills and photo mode captures.
|PlayStation Player Activities||Number of Points|
|Play any game of Player’s choosing||10|
|Play any game of Player’s choosing with another Player||15|
|Use Share feature||5|
|Obtain Bronze Trophy||5|
|Obtain Silver Trophy||10|
|Obtain Gold Trophy||20|
|Obtain five (5) trophies in a single game||25|
But wait, there’s more! Aside from the community challenges, there’s an even bigger competition on the way.
On November 17, 2021, Sony will be posting three “skill-based” questions on the Seize the Throne website. The participants who are closest to the correct answer for each question will bag themselves some serious swag. This includes the aforementioned PS5 console, as well as King’s PlayStation Shapes Ring Set, and a Pulse 3D Headset (which also comes with a PSN gift card).

The sign up link doesn’t seem to work in Chrome. But happily works in Microsoft’s terrible browser. Which is based on the same browser engine as Chrome these days.
A cunning plan by Sony to make MS look bad by forcing you to experience their browser?
Works in Chrome for me, but I had to sign out and back in again in order to get the sign-up button to show.
Bagging the trophies will depend on what new games are released during the promotion. Are the trophies for GTA Trilogy independent from the ones in the earlier games?
Sony should be pretty happy with the games division with over 13.4 million PS5s sold.
